Andrew Goldman Takes Over NYT Magazine’s ‘Questions For’ Column

Less than two weeks removed from ousting Deborah Solomon from the role, New York Times Magazine editor Hugo Lindgren has hired Andrew Goldman as her replacement for the “Questions For” column.  Goldman has written Elle’s monthly Cherchez La Femme column for eight years and interviewed countless celebrities about their dating lives.  Goldman will start at NYT Magazine on Mar. 6 and is confident that he will transition well into his new position.

I can certainly interview Donald Rumsfeld as well as I can interview Ashton Kutcher.  No, it’s not gonna be cute boys and cute girls. It’ll be smart guys and smart women.

Goldman added that he will stick to the same format that Solomon used for “Questions For.”  His last Cherchez La Femme column for Elle will run in June.

Check out Sebastian Rotella‘s story: “The trial of eight Britons charged with plotting to blow up transatlantic flights ended in London this week with a mixed verdict. But to anti-terrorism officials, two things are clear: The 2006 plot was an ambitious effort by Al Qaeda to match the carnage of the Sept. 11 attacks. And it failed.”
